Buona Festa della Mamma!


The greatest love is a mother’s…and from all of us at Palazzo San Niccolò Apartments in Florence, we wish all the mothers a very Happy ‘Festa della Mamma’! Mother’s day or Festa della Mamma as it is known in Italy was first celebrated in 1957 by a priest from the village of Tordibetto in Assisi.   As in many other countries, in Italy it is celebrated each year on the second Sunday of May.  It is a day widely celebrated as a special day to honor all mothers and motherhood.

Florence is the perfect location to spoil your mother and make her feel loved and appreciated and if you are staying in our San Niccolò neighborhood, then we suggest starting the day by treating your mother to an indulgent breakfast at one of the fantastic cafes in the area.  After breakfast, go and see a special exhibition in one of the many galleries that Florence is famous for.  If the sun is shining, then a stroll around the stunning gardens of Boboli or Bardini is a must.  You could also pamper your mother with her own personally designed perfume or send her to a day-spa so that she can totally relax and turn-off from her Mamma responsibilities for the day!

We couldn’t think of a better location than Florence to honour the very special women who raised us!
